Description

This volume examines the relationship between recognition theory and key developments in critical social epistemology. It explores how far certain kinds of epistemic injustice, epistemic oppression, and types of ignorance can be understood as distorted varieties of recognition.

Review Text

"

"In this rich collection of new papers, each contribution brings the resources of recognition theory into a fruitful conversation with those of epistemic injustice. Together they deliver a rewarding set of discussions that multiplies our tools for understanding the various phenomena in both theoretical domains. In particular, the idea of misrecognition is especially helpful in focusing attention on the phenomenology of epistemic injustice, bringing a distinctive psychological interpretation to our ways of thinking about its intrinsic wrong. I fully expect this collection to inspire many more such illuminating conceptual collaborations."
